I hate Swedish Fish. Really really hate them. Rather lick a hedgehog than eat a Swedish Fish...But I have a friend who is nuts about them. In honor of her (Her name is Gazelle), I made the Gazelle Swedish Fish Cordial. This was inspired by the "Shoot The Rainbow" instructable-Which actually tastes good.
If you know someone who loves these candy nightmares, make them a bottle. They may think you are the coolest.
Or they might curse you to your grave for having concocted such a nightmare.
First up...The stuff you need.
Step 1: The Nightmare Begins. Here's the Stuff.
Then a 1 quart jar (With lid)
Two cups of cheap vodka
A large bowl or pitcher
A bottle that can be sealed.
You will need all of this eventually. Right away, you need the vodka, a jar and the fish.
Do I really need to mention that everything should be clean?
Step 2: Mix It Up and Wait
Put the top on tightly and slosh it around gently, then store in a cool dry place for a week.
I should have put mine in a closet. I had to stare at it every day as it mocked me with it's horribleness.
Step 3: Get Rid of the Chunks.
You want to, don't you?
Go ahead, I dare you.
Mine got dumped down the disposal.
Step 4: Filtering Out the Filler
Pour the liquid from the pitcher or bowl back into the jar. Rinse the bits of dead fish candy from the strainer and put a coffee filter into it. Restrain the liquid from the jar back into the pitcher through the coffee filter. It will probably take two or more filters. The gunk still left in the vodka tends to slow the stream down to a drip very quickly.
Step 5: Make It Go Away.
I did try a sip. Now I hate Swedish Fish even more.
Sure does look pretty though!
